Fine Silver Fleur de Lis Medallion - For the Originals TV Show

$139.00

This handcrafted, fine silver traditional fleur de lis medallion is hand pressed, carved and molded by hand to have  a vintage and time worn, found treasure look. This piece was custom designed and sent to the stylist of the hit TV show The Originals for consideration as wardrobe for the show.

As the TV show The Originals takes place in New Orleans, I instantly thought of the classic fleur de lis design. This medallion measure approx 1" in size not including the detailed, soldered bail attached at the top. Because this piece is hand made, no 2 pieces will ever be the same as I allow the silver to take an organic shape after being pressed with it's round border.

* If you would like a personalization on the back of your necklace, please let me know in the message to seller section at checkout what initials, one name or date you would like hand stamped on the back.
 

 

How it's made:

Pure precious silver is 99.9% pure, making it more desirable and more expensive that sterling silver. It will also be much thicker than sterling giving it a beautiful wearable weight. Because it's so thick, it's worth far more than some of the other pendants you may see. It starts as a clay that can be molded, stamped and textured in any way imaginable. I roll the clay and weigh it for a uniform size. Then I press a vintage inspired fleur-de-lis design into the clay and let it do what it wants. This piece also includes a large ring border making it approx 1" in size.

No 2 pieces will ever be the same. It will be perfectly imperfect with raw edges and a rustic, old world feel with texture lines. I then let it dry, sand it to smoothness, and fire in a kiln for approx 3 hours. Once fired, it is solid 99.9% pure silver. I then wire brush it, file and sand it some more and when I'm happy with the texture I oxidize the piece to leave dark in the low areas and to highlight the high areas. Finally it goes in a tumbler for a final glimmering polish and to add extra strength. Long process, Yes. But sooooo worth it!!
